The Everest Podcast – Episode 9: “Crossing the Border into Tibet”

Join Erick as he broadcasts "live" from his trek to Advanced Base Camp 3 of Mount Everest. This video is built around an audio podcast Erick recorded each day along his journey from Kathmandu, Nepal, through Tibet, and then along the Mount Everest North Col, as he ascended the mountain's North Face. The photos you see were taken by Erick during the trek. In this episode: A day-long drive along the Friendship Highway takes Erick from Kathmandu into Tibet. Erick talks about a rather sketchy border crossing, and the rapid deterioration in accommodations.
